Need a healthy family meal?
You can't go wrong with this healthy pasta sauce!
Kids can be fussy eaters. I know, I have three of them (well, they're not that fussy - really!). One day they will eat something and then the next day, it's all change! So when you mention avocado on pasta, you'd think they would flat out refuse to take part in that sort of carry on. And I'm sure if you mentioned a vegan pasta dish for dinner - to all those carnivores out there, they would laugh in your face. But this recipe is better than the best pesto you will ever have tried. And that's a big claim.
Now the kids are back at school, I'm always looking for a recipe to save time in the evening. This Avocado, Brazil & Cashew Nut Pesto is perfect. I was going to add some broccoli and courgette too, but I ran out of time!
My eldest son has been begging us for three years now to go back to having school meals. So after all his begging and Mr Mean starting a new job that means he is absent during the morning 'get ready for school' routine, we agreed!
Although first-day-back reports haven't gone well. He really didn't like the food they served up. He was pretty disgusted by the state of the pasta dish they served-up. Plain pasta is not his thing. So when he asked what was for dinner and I told him pasta - he wasn't keen.
But I needn't have worried. They all loved this dish, so I better get on and share it with you too. It's super quick, super satisfying, super healthy, and super tasty!
